Where did that come from? Best MUFC performance of the season. Finest since Leverkusen in Nov '13? Liverpool next, the 1990 league champions

Manchester United were at their frightening best today, beating Tottenham Hotspur 3-0 in a game which all but ended Mauricio Pochettino’s hopes of Champions League qualification.
In what was undoubtedly Louis Van Gaal’s best game in charge, the Red Devils blitzed Tottenham’s defence and found themselves 3-0 up at half time.
Manchester United comfortably saw the game through to full time, producing some lovely football in the process.
Tottenham couldn’t deal with the likes of Marouane Fellaini, Ashley Young and Wayne Rooney whilst Christian Eriksen and Harry Kane were kept incredibly quiet.
The win keeps Manchester United 4th, extending their lead over 5th placed Liverpool to 5 points (having played one game more.)
After finally seeing his side click, Louis Van Gaal will be looking forward to facing Liverpool at Anfield next weekend.
